Post-Operative Taping Only - $79
Taping is an elastic and contensive bandage that has been widely used in plastic surgery, bringing numerous advantages to patients in the postoperative period, preserving the mobility of the body and reducing any chances of complications after the surgical procedure.
The taping is used immediately on the patient's skin after the surgery preserving the body's mobility and reducing postoperative complications. The application of taping also offers a number of benefits to patients, such as more comfort and reduced pain during surgery recovery.
The use of taping also helps to control and reduce edema (swelling) and prevent ecchymosis (the purple that appears on the skin after surgery). Another benefit of taping application is the reduction in the number of postoperative therapy sessions, in addition to the decrease in the appearance of fibrosis (scarring that forms internally after surgery).
There are still some basic guidelines for the use of taping, the main recommendation is not to wet the bandage until it is removed, which can take 3 to 5 days after application. If the taping is wet, it is possible to dry it with a warm dryer.
Another key guideline, of course, involves the removal of taping from patients. Removal of the bandage is performed by esthetician’s specialized in this technique, in order to ensure complete safety of recovery from the surgical procedure.
